It Hurts

It hurts to let
me face the reality
of you not loving me

but it hurts me
more to see you in
your compromising,

in your lonely
times and not feeling
the right way.

It will set me
free if I can be
honest to myself and

if I can tell you
that love is a serious
game and not like

us pretending, not like
us playing tricks on
each other.

But this is a one-sided
love affair, and I can
just let you go,

knowing that you
don’t really love me
and I know it hurts.
